With two goal contributions in the past four games, Matty Sorinola believes he is starting to find his feet at Swansea City.

The Union SG man joined the Swans on a season-long loan in July and admitted that he had a slower start to life in south Wales. But, with a quarter of the games now played, he feels that both he and the team are finding form.

Sorinola chested in from two yards against West Bromwich Albion to give the Swans a dream start at The Hawthorns, and his excellent ball to the back post was turned in by Ryan Manning against Hull City. His other assist came away at Stoke City; it was his cross which was turned in by Joel Piroe.

“I had a slow start, but I'm finding my way into things,” he said.

“I was still adapting. I feel now I am starting to find my form and I’m playing with confidence.

“My job is to defend as well as attack. I want to try and contribute as much as I can to the team. I’m happy I have got two assists; I'd like to kick on and try and get some more.

“It’s great to have the boys around me, it helps me every day and obviously I know the manager as well. I feel like I'm finally getting into the rhythm of things. I just need to keep it going.

“The team’s on fire now as well. We just need to keep going now. We have momentum, hopefully it’ll go to plan on Saturday, and we can put in another good performance.

“The mood is high right now, but we need to take it game by game and carry on and try and get another win. We’re not looking too far ahead.”

While confidence is high within the squad, Sorinola insists the team are not getting carried away as they prepare to face Burnley.

The Clarets are the only side remaining in the Championship who are unbeaten at home while they have tasted defeat just once on the road.

“They’re a good side, but we also know our qualities as well," he added.

"We think we can go anywhere put in a good performance and hopefully get the three points.

“We know it is not going to be an easy game, so we know we have to be at our best.

“I think it’s about the team's character. We’ve been behind and managed to come back. It’s about trying to maintain the momentum of the game and not let them get on top of us. We’re doing well now so we just need to keep going.”
